The Socialist Peoples Republic of Caraisa is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Baris Leistung with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.853 billion Caraisans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Büle. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Caraisan economy, worth 825 trillion MKS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 141,000 MKS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, the police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence, war vets look after war animals, and one-word headlines are the norm in Caraisan newspapers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Caraisa's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Caraisa is ranked 142,340th in the world and 27th in CISB for Rudest Citizens, with 41 Insults Per Minute.
